Abstract Objective There has been debate on the importance and pathophysiologic effects of the dynamic subaortic pressure gradient in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. The study was conducted to elucidate the hemodynamic abnormalities associated with the dynamic pressure gradient in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Methods Eight patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and 7 patients with valvular aortic stenosis underwent a detailed hemodynamic study of pressure flow relationships before and after myectomy or aortic valve replacement during operation. Results In aortic stenosis, the increased gradient after premature ventricular contraction was associated with an increase in peak flow (325 ± 122 mL/s to 428 ± 147 mL/s, P = .002) and stroke volume (75.0 ± 27.3 mL to 88.0 ± 24.0 mL, P = .004), but in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy peak flow remained unchanged (289 ± 79 mL/s to 299 ± 85 mL/s, P = .334) and stroke volume decreased (45.9 ± 18.7 mL to 38.4 ± 14.4 mL, P = .04) on the postpremature ventricular contraction beat. After myectomy, the capacity to augment stroke volume on the postpremature ventricular contraction beats was restored in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (45.6 ± 14.4 mL to 54.4 ± 11.8 mL, P = .002). Conclusions The pressure flow relationship in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy supports the concept of true obstruction to outflow, with a low but continued flow during late systole, when the ventricular-aortic pressure gradient is the highest. Septal myectomy can abolish obstruction and restore the ability to augment stroke volume, which may explain the mechanism of symptomatic improvement after operation.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a genetic disorder characterized by marked hypertrophy of the myocardium. It is frequently accompanied by dynamic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction and symptoms of dyspnea, angina, and syncope. The initial therapy for symptomatic patients with obstruction is medical therapy with β-blockers and calcium antagonists. However, there remain a subset of patients who have continued severe symptoms, which are unresponsive to medical therapy. These patients can be ...

Dynamic left ventricular outflow obstruction is a major cause of exertional symptoms in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The obstruction is secondary to systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve abutting against a hypertrophied septum, resulting in diastolic dysfunction, myocardial

Aims Characterization of pulmonary hypertension (PH) and the effects of myectomy in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) remain poorly defined. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of myectomy on PH in HCM. Methods and results This is a retrospective analysis of 306 consecutive symptomatic HCM patients (70% NYHA class III–IV) with evaluation of echocardiographic right ventricular systolic pressure (RVSP) both preceding (median 3 days) and following (median 4 days) myectomy. Compared w...

The presence of syncope despite medical therapy in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) is considered an indication for surgical myectomy; however, no study has examined the long-term effects on recurrent syncope and survival after surgery in these patients. We examined 239 patients with HC and a history of syncope who had undergone surgical myectomy (mean age 48 ± 17 years; 56% men). The patients were age- and gender-matched to patients with HC and syncope who were treated medically w...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common monogenic cardiac disorder and has been estimated to occur in 1 of every 500 people in the general population, amounting to a total of ≈600 000 persons in the United States.1 Its pathophysiology and optimal management have been the subject of conjecture and debate for more than a century. The issues surrounding left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction in HCM have evoked the most discussion. Article see p 2374 In 1907, a German patholo...

Objectives We sought to summarize our recent experience with intraoperative monitoring for management of patients undergoing surgical myectomy for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy with emphasis on dynamic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction. We also analyzed the impact of these data on surgical decision-making and adequacy of septal myectomy. Methods We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of 198 patients who underwent transaortic septal myectomy and evaluated baseline and ...

Aims The evoked QT interval can be detected beat by beat through an implanted pacing system. The correlation between the right ventricular paced QT interval and the left ventricular systolic interval is not known. The aim of our study was to collect data on the correlation between QT and systolic and diastolic indexes at different heart rates in patients with dual-chamber rate-responsive pacemakers. Method and results The study involved 13 patients [67 ± 9 years; ejection fraction (EF) 52 ± 10%]...

Objective: Advanced cardiovascular surgery in structural heart disease require accurate pre-operative evaluation. Most of non-invasive imaging technologies remain limited in two-dimensional and show insufficiency of visualization for procedural planning. The aim of this study was to discuss the value of patient-specific 3-dimensional (3D) printing in treatment of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Methods: Patient-specific 3D-printed models were constructed preoperatively in 12 consecutive HOCM ...

Objective The geometric configuration of the intraventricular tunnel (IVT) is related to the re-intervention of left ventricular outflow tract stenosis after double outlet right ventricle (DORV) correction. Hemodynamic simulation was performed to study the influence of the geometric configuration of IVT on the flow resistance. Methods CT images of DORV were processed to determine the size and relative position of the aortic valve orifice and ventricular septal defect. Nine groups of the idealize...
